Located 25 minutes from Telluride mountain village, the +- 2240 acres of the Beaver Mesa Livestock & Elk Ranch is so beautiful that it was selected by renown professional photographer John Fielder for some of its most photogenic views,,…we think you’ll agree. Land Being that the water out west is now held as the gold standard these days, the incredible 7 registered ponds, and water rights out of the J&M Hughes Ditch that  irrigates +/- 50% of Beaver Mesa Livestock & Elk Ranch is value added, that few ranches can compare to and is  one of the few large family holdings remaining.  Priced millions below comparable size ranches in the area, the Cattlemen’s Assoc Conservation Easement that encompasses the ranch, allows 4 separate building envelopes (each envelope is 5 acres) that would be ideal for that Yellowstone dream home & value is already factored in.  This conservation easement  also has +- 200  acres that are not enrolled and have developmental potential. It would be like living inside your own national park. The easement also allows the property to be subdivided 1 time (must be a minimum of 500 acres). Tax credits still available on the +- 200 acres. Improvements  Improvements include a comfortable & warm +/- 1200 sqft  3/2 ranch home that makes for great guest or caretaker quarters with a spring fed well with magnificent views from the living room showcasing the Telluride mountains. An easy road system allows access throughout the ranch. There is also a 3000 foot airstrip in place, but not currently in use. Recreation BGU 70 offers todays sportsman with over-the-counter rifle elk tags, and close to 100% draw for archery elk tags. Beaver Mesa Livestock and Elk has been documented as an excellent producer of both trophy quality elk and mule deer. With +/- 20% of the ranch in gorgeous aspens, allowing for deer & elk bedding areas with abundant feed and water throughout. The ranch has traditionally drawn landowner mule deer tags that have been unit wide allocation, with monster bucks documented from the area. Blue grouse & turkey also call the ranch home. BML&E Ranch has traditionally carried +/- 300 pair for 4 months a year, and keeps an incredibly low tax bill of +/- $3100 annually… History Be it the land investment retreat you always dreamed of- close to Telluride skiing ,4 wheeling, dining & air access, or the location you wished for to build that Yellowstone Dream home that would make for an unimaginable equestrian property.  Large watered & protected land holdings like Beaver Mesa Livestock & Elk Ranch are becoming more and more scarce…call or email today for more info and your qualified showing.
